Their comment to me was that not only was this a lovely home but it was even nicer than the pictures led them to believe and they called me within minutes of leaving the house to book a weeks stay. They told me they had discovered that some of the homes that they had looked at had pictures on their site that were taken some time ago and that when they visited the
